REVIEW: Pacific Wharf Café Dishes Out A Sweet Dessert for the 2023 Lunar New Year Festival at Disney California Adventure

The Lunar New Year Festival is typically known for savory dishes, with few dessert options. For the 2023 festival, the Pacific Wharf Café decided to stray away from hearty, heavy options and serve up a special dessert.

*NEW* White Chocolate Apple Bread Pudding – $6.49

Granny Smith Apples and white chocolate with crème anglaise and whipped topping

When it comes to the Pacific Wharf Cafe, we’ve come to expect a delicious and delectable bread pudding. Just read our reviews of the Chocolate-Espresso Bread Pudding offered this fall, and your mouth will be watering, too. With hopeful expectations in check, we’re happy to report that the White Chocolate Apple Bread Pudding continues a streak of delicious treats for Pacific Wharf Café, offering an irresistible addition to Lunar New Year offerings.

The Granny Smith apples are fresh and fruit-forward, with a very present fresh apple flavor. Its balance of tartness and sweetness isn’t lost in the cooking. The bread pudding is soft and delicate, and just crispy enough around the edges.

A drizzle of Créme Anglaise matches an oozing base of the custard-like sauce and holds everything together in a sweet, decadent bliss. A ring of whipped topping adds more velvety sweetness to the dish, already rich with white chocolate.

We thoroughly enjoyed this bread pudding, as we would expect from Pacific Wharf Cafe after all this time. Though this bread pudding isn’t necessarily traditional, its rich, sweet flavors have a way of instilling a sense of nostalgia and excitement that will keep us coming back for more.

The Lunar New Year festival is running from January 20 through February 15, 2023.
